  1. Hello,
    is the Ibanez SRX505 Bass a good bass for a Metal/Hardrock Band? I can have it for 400€. Is that a good price for the bass?
    Thx a lot :)
     
  2. Yeah, great bass for metal and hardrock, the X in the SR stands for Xtreme so srx is soundgear extreme., this bass is made for metal, so srx is soundgear extreme.

    I have one and it is quite loud, sounds good too! It is actually a good all-around type of bass and will definitely work well in a metal setting. I use mine as a backup and the guys love it when it comes out.

    I just bought an IbanezSRX505, it is a great bass with a lot of attitude. Great low end on it. Mine was not set up properly, i had to take it to this one person who was good at setting up basses. He sells higher end basses and he was amazed at the sound of the IbanezSRX505, he sells mostly Warwicks however he stated for the $$ the bass(Ibanez) is a great deal.

    I paid $509.00 new plus an $70.00 case and a free subscription to Rolling Stone magazine.
     
  8. Thats a fairly standard thing im afraid, Ibanez basses seem to always need setup out of the box

    Definitely! I had to reduce the amount of relief in the neck when I got mine (I like a flat neck). The real joke is that one of the guitarists at L&M set it up. You could have flown a 747 between the strings and the fretboard. Any way, once it is setup it is just a joy to play.
     
  10. I was referring to the fact that this bass has been labeled a "metal bass", when infact, there is no type of "metal bass." You could use whatever you want. Also, this bass can be used for more that just metal. This bass has a nice lowend that would suffice for some groovy jazz tunes, and maybe even a bit o' da' funk too.
